In his guest column last week [“Program not a ‘STEP’ ahead”] he described the STEP program that the current school board is so proud of. This program sacrifices time from study of important subjects like math, science and English to make room for teaching students how to play Hearts, do needle point, throw a Frisbee and how to cook.
